Hey BD--it's amazing how often that surfaces; pretty cool, really.

Did you notice Mickey (someone else?) wearing the Duke t shirt in one of the photos a few days past? Thought of you, which is another Forum tidbit that's sticking with me (ie, the past few yrs if I see Coach K, I think of you; if I hear Winwood and Clapton, and recall you encouraging me to gush, I think of you...odd how these things go).

Glad my urging on Clapton and Winwood worked - WILLIE WEEKS!

Duke hoops already underway - they are traveling to China and Dubai. Last year I was shouting Kyrie Irving at this time of year - we got him for 11 freakin' games and out as a #1 pick. This year the shouting is about Austin Rivers, Doc's kid. So good....

...but UNC looks like the team to beat.

Why is Brian Shaw not on the Lakers' bench?

Whoa Nelly! (Keith Jack-son)
I thought of something quite different when I saw the thread title. Well crated, non-Irish rogue.

Throwing Up. So boring after the fist 100 times. I'm sure it varies b/c the inevitable "I love this song!" reactions. Maybe we all have our different quota of times listened to. Musically, it's 'jam' is a Pollack dump of gray bits of other jams. The lyrics are mostly lame and Bobby screaming at the end was among some of the very worst live music I've heard. And it sliced into NFA, which I like so long you forget about which song it is.
Then, I once saw he & Wasserman play it . It got my attention. (Maybe it was Bushnell Hall). I thought that GD was not the best vehicle for the song. I was wrong. In most Weir's solo efforts it often didn't do much. (It was probably Bushnell Hall).

As a rule, I like Throwing Stones okay. Not an A-Lister, but I think of it as one that has a very '80s energy in a good way, like Touch, MSWS and Iko. (They started playing Iko earlier, but I just think of it as being '80s-ish in mood.)

But I can't resist whining about 10/11/83 on the simple and maybe silly basis that even if it IS good (which it probably is), it's one of the times they did it out of StSt, which drives me nuts. Even though the '83 StSts weren't exactly the height of sparkling Stephen-ishness, I just find the pairing to be conceptual whiplash. It's like going from a timeless ecstatic garden into this very time-specific, rather angry (for the Dead) commentary.

At its best, Stones can feel like a sort of generational anthem, and there's a cool aspect to that in the sense of the continuity of the band and finding a new era of fans. In fact, that's part of what I like about it; picking up on that particular energy and sensibility. And I'm definitely not turned off by time-specific, political, radical-he-rants-and-raves music. (Dead Kennedys, anyone?) But not out of Stephen!!!!!

On the whole, I can take it and enjoy it or skip it and not miss it ... but I agree with Elbow on 9/24/94. Wonderful show, Stones and all.

"Dead Kennedys, anyone?"

Yes please.

I am hardly a big "T. Stones" fan , but I liked the earlier versions, before the middle section became the "Samson-ish" set piece .
